Ok guys, so I'm wrong.
I've admitted it that I'm wrong, and everyone else is right.





.............. or am I the only one in step? :wink:

Nope you're wrong! . Too much sun. There's hornet cam footage as evidence. Take a cool drink like a budvar or urquell to recover. English warm ale won't cut it. :D

The original photo is here:
https://andyw39.smugmug.com/CYCLESPORT/ ... -LB38jBw/A
and looks pretty much like the one on the cover of Cycle.

The next photo taken a moment later:
https://andyw39.smugmug.com/CYCLESPORT/ ... -QBMSZ7L/A

shows more of the occluded rider from the first image and shows that he would have been largely obscured in the cover shot, and is heading somewhat towards the camera, so the bike is foreshortened, making the wheels less prominent.

So I think we can safely conclude that these two cyclists really did land on the moon.

Thanks for the smugmug link - I've found us on the (ex-reohn2) Cannondale tandem (link). :D

On topic - I think the "doctoring" claimcan safely be dismissed now.

I wondered initially, if the mystery rider might have been 'Dynamo', the illusionist off the telly, but

on reflection decided it was more likely to be this chap off the Fast Show...

Badger Direct Action Prevents Re-Enactment!

Apparently the Budworth Badgers were photoshopped out of the Cycle Mag cover, and are not happy.

George and Dragon unaffected.

If you'd reduced the size I might not have noticed the glass shape. I've been to a lot of pubs over the years and that's a new one to me
